di'lishi is the creation of Marlo Francis from Asheboro, NC. Her first experience with frozen yogurt came after her son told her about discovering the self-serve concept in a neighboring state when he left for college - and he was eager for her to try it when she planned her next visit. Before that could happen, though, Marlo happened upon a bar for herself, while travelling to a larger city near her hometown. After several repeat visits - including eventually traveling to see her son and trying the yogurt bar in his college town, it didn't take long before she began dreaming about opening a shop of her own - one that reflected her unique interpretation of the concept. She wanted to create an environment that invited people to come in and stay awhile. She wanted to serve the finest yogurt and toppings that she could find, as well as a way to regularly contribute to the community around her.
After all of her hard work, the result was di'lishi! She built her model on what have become the three foundational pillars of the company: good for the body, good for the environment and good for the community. With these pillars firmly in place, di'lishi has been a success from the start! Fortifying these three pivotal pillars has made di'lishi, what Marlo calls, "fro-yo recession-proof" - meaning it's built to stand the test of time, instead of being just another quick cookie cutter following a trend. We, at di'lishi, are firm believers in our product and concept - and we are committed to helping you make your store profitable today and in the future.
The decision to throw my 'cup' into the ring came after a lot of research and a growing belief that even though the market was becoming riddled with new chains and independent shops - they were all essentially playing follow the leader. Small stores clustered in big cities... limited variety... shockingly bright... or feminine... or childlike... and yet, all of them drawing a decent crowd because of the trend. So I asked myself - what did these shops have to offer their customers at the end of the trend? Could I create a unique interpretation that would outlast the trend and provide my customers with an experience that would bring them back day after day and year after year... and if so, what would that look like? As these questions rolled around under my big hair, they found answers, and once the answers grew wings, di'lishi was born. - Marlo Francis

In 1991, East of Chicago Pizza was founded on our signature fresh pan pizza, devotion to quality, and the belief customers deserve the best tasting pizza with every bite. We believe our commitment to these three principles is the driving force behind our growth and success.
East of Chicago Pizza is a proven franchise system, which has thrived for over twenty years in the ultra-competitive pizza industry. We have more than 80 locations in six states and in 2013, East of Chicago continued its impressive growth by surpassing 48 consecutive months of same-store-sales increases, the addition of 12 new locations, all while breaking the $30 million mark in franchise-wide sales.
In 2008, Tony Collins, a multi-unit operator, purchased the franchise. Tony's vision for the East of Chicago brand centered on the drive and success of existing operators. "It started with engagement of the owners across the board," Collins said. "We looked at each operating unit and completed over 200 store visits in order to establish our vision and company goals for the next five years. Plus, we invested heavily in training and operational systems while securing national distribution channels." Today, East of Chicago Pizza is recognized throughout the Midwest for our specialty pizzas, delicious subs, and signature wings.
In the next five years, the company plans on reaching a total of 150 units and growing the corporate structure to provide continued support to the franchisee in all aspects of development, training and operations. The drive and success of existing franchisees are major aspects of East of Chicago's future growth plans. "You have to see beyond initial investment and want to grow larger with us," said Collins, noting the brand emphasizes there is a huge opportunity for aggressive expansion in key territories. "We look for potential franchisees who have great passion, a background in restaurant management, or, ideally, a multi-unit operator."
Opening an East of Chicago Pizza franchise does not require past experience. If you have experience, it is an advantage since you already understand the time commitment and what it takes to be successful. If you don't have experience, you are in a great situation since you don't have any pre-existing ideas about what you should be doing. Our experienced team of support personnel will help you make the most of your time and answer any questions. Plus, you can take advantage of the experience and wisdom of our franchisees, area developers, and our vendors.
Our ideal candidate has a background in restaurant management, preferably franchise restaurants; strong management skills; the ability to consistently motivate themselves and those around them; and the willingness to devote time and energy to the business.
Successful franchise operators are unanimous in their belief that working with people, building our Brand value and a commitment to our founding core principles are the best attributes for any potential franchise owner.
